    The top brake lights works when braking but the other 2 do not...i replaced both bulbs and replaced a fuse but still no success. Only the top brake light works...all other lights work as well.

    When lights are turned on, the headlights work fine, but interior dash panel lights and running lights all around are out. I had it fixed before to the tune of $600...supposedly a 'short', but the same problem happened 6 months later. Blinkers and brakelights work fine, too, when activated.

    I'm having the same problem with my 2000 zx3. Head lights work, blinkers work too.. It's only the tail lights and dash board lights that aren't working.
    What does replacing the brake light switch do? My mechanics are completely stumped.....

Had this problem myself. Try replacing your brake light switch, they are not real expensive and can be changed in a matter of mineuts. It is located by following your brake pedal all the way up to the top, when you get there , there id a switch that when you push down on the brake it releases the button to put you brake lights on and when you take your foot off the brake itallows the switch to go back.

My headlight an brake light work, but my front and rear blinkers don't work at all work. What's my problem?

The Headlights and Brake Lights are on Separate Fuses. The Blinkers will probably be on a separate fuse also. Find the Fuse Box and look for a blown fuse first.

1994 S10 rear break lights and blinkers do not work.

The headlight switch would have nothing to do with brake lights and turn signals. The turn signal switch would.

Left and right rear brake lights are out. center brake light comes on. rear blinkers are out too. front blinkers blink fast like a blown bulb but they arent blown. fuses are good.

it sounds like you need to replace the turn signal switch ( also known as a multifunction switch). The brake lights also go through that switch; You will have to remove the cover from around the lower part of the steering column to gain access to the switch.Hope this helps. Please leave comment.
